ABOUT ME

It’s not normal to have IBS. It may be common, but if you’re struggling with digestive issues, life is hard.

 

Skin complaints, menstrual or fertility problems, autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue and pain often go hand-in hand with IBS symptoms. And, despite what you may have heard, food can help. A lot.

It’s my mission to find out why you might be suffering, and address the root cause. That could be a vitamin or mineral deficiency, a food intolerance, a hormone imbalance or an issue with the micro-organisms in your gut, among many other possibilities.

Our bodies need the right balance of nutrients to work properly. In today’s world, it’s almost impossible to achieve that. If you’re reading this, you might have come to accept that suffering is just part of your life. You may have been told that it’s normal.

So why don’t you feel normal?

You can take back your health, starting today.

BECOME A CLIENT

My approach is different to mainstream medicine, and it can take time to connect the dots, analyse test results and get to the root of a health problem, so I prefer to work over at least four sessions. However, you can book just one initial session, where I will take an in-depth history of your health before creating your personal plan which I will email to you.

I work out of the Wellington Centre, a holistic health and wellbeing centre in Hastings, East Sussex, and The Open Door, in Lewes. I also make home visits to people with limited mobility.

 

 

IBS/IDEAL PACKAGE

Initial consultation + 3 follow-ups | £290.00

The IBS/ideal package of an initial consultation and three follow-ups means I can use a number of clinical tests and tweak my approach to solving your health puzzle based on results, over the course of four or five months.

Changing the way you eat and live can be a confusing and daunting process. If you need support in between sessions, I'm at the end of an email.

 

 

INITIAL CONSULTATION

1 hr | £85.00

An initial consultation is a friendly one-to-one conversation.

Before it happens, you fill in a short questionnaire and food diary. 

We'll discuss your health aims and questionnaire answers, including current conditions, medication, medical history, diet and lifestyle. You should bring along any medical test results.

I will email your nutritional plan, containing targeted diet, supplement and lifestyle suggestions, a few days after the consultation. I might recommend some lab tests to help uncover possible root causes for your symptoms. If that testing is available on the NHS, I recommend contacting your GP.

 

 

FOLLOW-UP SESSION

45 mins | £75.00

The follow-up is usually six weeks after the initial consultation, but this is flexible. We'll discuss how your health aims are progressing, how you have managed with the nutritional plan, and the results of any functional or medical tests.

I'll amend and update your nutritional plan based on any changes in your symptoms, your goals or your test results. If your condition or symptoms don't respond to a particular approach, it's my job to discover why, and find the right way for you.

Choosing a properly qualified and registered practitioner is crucial: Nutritional therapists must have the level of skill to support sometimes complex and life-limiting conditions. Many courses in nutrition are very short and lack depth.

 

I am registered with British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), which is supported by the Department of Health to regulate complementary therapies. The CNHC holds an Accredited Voluntary Register, a status awarded by the Professional Standards Authority. Registration with CNHC requires that the practitioner has training and experience to the National Occupational Standard, which is set by Skills for Health, a government agency. Registered practitioners are also required to have proper practice insurance and to keep their skills and knowledge up to date by ongoing training.

I completed a three year diploma in naturopathic nutrition with the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) which consisted of one year of biomedicine and two years of naturopathic nutrition. The course content was evidence-based and involved 200 hours of clinical practice.
